Heritage Signature Auction: just linking to new record prices as usual, there are more “high prices” than what I can show here… Steve Ditko wins with his new $432k record price, $100k more than his previous record made just last January.
$228k record for Don Heck with another page from the origina of Iron-Man, $228k interior art record for Frank Miller, $216k record for Calvin & Hobbes art by Watterson, the same strip was sold in 2020 for $102k.
Big record for Dave McKean, with the Sandman #5 cover sold for $90k, am I forgetting a Daredevil piece sold elsewhere or this Ninjak cover sold for $66k is the record price for Joe Quesada?
$66k for a Wolverine splash by Adam Kubert, $52k for a Stormwatch cover by Charest, very high $50k jump for a Ghost Rider cover by Texeira, $28k for a Wolverine cover by Bret Blevins, $25k for a Captain Marvel cover by Pat Broderick, $25k for Ron Lim (no time to check the ComicLink prices), $21k for Chuck Patton.
Auction record price for a Spawn cover by Greg Capullo (we all know of that Batman cover sold privately for much more..). $19k for Ernie Chan, $15k for Gary Frank, $14k for Stephen Platt, $14k for a Lynn Varley DKR color guide.
$13k for the Jeff Matsuda cover I bought in 1998 for $250 and traded for more or less $1,200 in 2010, well, it was its price at the time… 😒
There were also many “affordable” prices, let’s start high and then go down. This Batman cover by Jim Lee went for a pretty good $45k, a Johnny Comet Sunday by Frank Frazetta for $15k, I think Batman pages by Neal Adams are still going low at $20k, look at this Spidey page by Byrne sold for $11k, a well designed Hulk page by McFarlane went for $8k, Dr. Strange by Barry Smith for $5k, a Conan splash by Kane for $3,8k, a Thanos splash by Starlin for $2k and a DPS for $1,5k, some detailed monster sketches by Wrightson for less than $1k, many good deals on Garfield strips.
